Bought a couple of horses several days ago and picked them up today and brought them home.

Neither one runs right now and I'm not sure what is wrong with each one, but I got them reasonable and if I have to part one or the other out, I will get my money back and then some!

 

Here are the requested pictures!

1981 C-125 (with a 14 HP Kohler Magnum transplant)

I like them black hoods. But, you can't beat a 16 hp Kohler!

OK, you live in IN, someplace I havn't looked at map yet.  I have a C-175 that was a twin and want to make like that 125 with a single K engine. OR, sell me one of those engines???  Buy My tractor???  I couldn't see splitting up either one of yours really, but do need an engine if you know of one. Needs to be complete and turnable, even better if off a Horse and has the same specs then for drive train pulleys and such.  Still think you should buy my chassis. The hydro works, had that hooked up to another tractor and it runs good.

That C-160 is my all time favorite Horse. It's got style and power.

Had the time to mess with the C-160 this afternoon.

I towed it into the garage and removed the hood for easier access to the engine.

Starter was rusted tight, so I disassembled it, cleaned it up and reassembled it and it worked.

Had to put a coil and condenser on it. Wired it up, put the battery charger on it, and adjusted the points.

Cranked it and had good spark!

Shot a little gasoline into the carb, jumped the solenoid, and the sucker fired right up and died.

Got my spary bottle of gasoline and kept it running for a couple minutes just spraying fuel into the carb.

 

Will work on the fuel system tomorrow....Should be driving around in a few days!

My 16 hp Kohler is a beast too! Very dependable, never had a problem. Grandsons love the power the '85 416-8 Stallion has! 

 

Been using Berryman's fuel system cleaner, 1 oz. per gallon of gas. 89 Octane gas too.
